an exotic bird at a famous s vegas casino. police say these two uc berkeley law students have been arrested accused of killing on pattic bird at a famous -- exotic bird at a famous las vegas casino. the two 24-year-olds decapitated him in the wildlife habitat at the hotel casino. witnesses say they saw the men laughing and tossing the bird's body around. now this is a picture of what a helmeted guinea fowl looks like. the video captured the men chasing the bird into the trees. don't listen to anyone going door to door asking about home alarm systems. that's the warning from oakland police. they say those people could be casing homes for burglaries.
someone complained about a man wearing an official looking orange vest that read oakland public safety. he asked how up-to-date their alarm system was, whether it was monitored and if it was tooked up to a -- hooked up to a cell phone or landline. they are not aware of any city sponsored program making this sort of questioning and residents shouldn't answer questions. daredevil felix baumgartner is attempting to become the first daredevil to break the sound bearier. the weather forecast looks favorable for the jump tomorrow near roswell. new mexico at sunrise. he will ride a 55 story helium balloon to the edge of space, and then jump from 23 miles high. he expects to break the sound barrier before he activates his parachute at about 5,000 feet above the new mexico desert. hopefully the weather will cooperate for him and if you like warm weather than we've got the forecast for you. it's heating up again. >> and we had a jump today.
we jumped a food ten degrees in comparison to yesterday when we had plenty of cloud cover and cool conditions and even isolated showers. hi everybody. let's take a look at today's high temperatures across the bay area from the low 60s in pacifica through the beaches. 78 degrees in san francisco. that's spot-on for this time of the year. low 70s in san jose down from the average high of 77. and we were in the mid 70s in santa rosa average high about four degrees off the mark. 76 in livermore. this is the scene on your saturday evening. and the city by the way. where currently it is 62 degrees. temps still into the 60s and 70s pretty much across the board tonight we'll bottom out into the 40s and 50s and we will see the sky become partly cloudy with some areas of low clouds drifting on shore from a vigorous west wind 10 to 20. area of low pressure to the north of us banging up against the pacific northwest but jet stream arcing wall to the north under the influence of high pressure that's actually expanding.
it will warm us up even additionally tomorrow. what does that mean for kickoff? we have our san francisco 49ers playing host to the champion new york giants. partly sunny, 66 degrees at game time at 1:25. meanwhile, your afternoon highs in the 60s approaching 70 degrees. that's the pumpkin festival and half-moon bay. low 70s common across the peninsula. 80 degrees in santa clara. 84 degrees. mid 70s will be common around walnut creek back in through clayton into hercules. 78 to the north. but napa warmer than that and sonoma where today we had 78. 79 there tomorrow and low 70s 234 san francisco. north winds 10 to 20 date in the lay. otherwise -- late in the day. then also the difference on tuesday, notice your coastal areas even by thursday up to 75 in pacifica. low 80s across the bay to 94 inland. but our air quality will take a hit with moderate levels of
ozone in the atmosphere but let's back up a bit. we do have some baseball tomorrow with bumgarner on the mound for the good guys. 5:00 the game starts. sunny skies and 64 degrees as the giants play host to the defending champs, the st. louis cardinals and kim coyle has a look at the sports. thanks, the giants and cardinals are set for game one of the nlcs. and stanford's overtime fate came down to a goal line stand. sports is next.
wasn't enough to guarantee s tim lincecum may have been one of the heros in cincinnati but it wasn't enough to guarantee his spot back in the rotation. bruce bochy said he will be available out of the bullpen for games one and two of the nlcs. so who are your starters for the first two games? tomorrow madison bumgarner will shake off the loss in game two against the reds and ryan vogelsong gets the nod for game two. he gave up a run and three hits in game three. >> really, if you look at the -- the game we had and the game they had, they were similar. we were up 6-0 barely hung on. and they found a way to get it done. and you know, both clubs at some point had their backs to the wall. and they're down a couple of runs in the 9th. they found a way to get it done so i think it says about a lot about the two clubs, the character of the clubs and how hard they fight and it should
be a hard fought series here. and there's the ball hit off the glove of -- desmond! two runs are going to score. the cardinals will tie it up. >> one of last night's hee rhees daniel descalso drove in the game tying run for the cardinals. they will be ahem combing for him who was born in redwood city and graduated from st. francis. in the untiles the he had two home runs and six rbi. >> when i got to hit the tie it. you know i was -- i was on first base you know all fired up. but i looked in the dugout and the guys were going crazy and that fired me up even more out there. when pete got the big knock to put us ahead. it was chaos in there. that was an awesome feeling. >> he's somebody that has -- that has the respect of our entire clubhouse. a group of guys who've had a lot of accomplishments really understand and appreciate the style of baseball player that daniel descalso is. and i think he's showing the world what he has and he's just
a ballplayer. andrew luck is gone but certainly not forgotten down at stanford. without herman cain the offense -- him the offense has yet to score a touchdown on the road this season. second quarter in south bend, stanford down 3-0. the irish backed up in their own zone and ben gardner all over golson causes the fumble. chase thomas falls on it for a stanford touchdown. cardinal up 10-3 at the half. second half on third and 18. notre dame strikes. golson from 24 yards out to tyler to tie the game at 10. in overtime, notre dame gets on the board first. the backup qb tommy reese finds tj jones. city on the taylor is stuffed by the defense. and then on fourth down they try it again. but unfortunately, same result. the officials would review the play on the second effort but the call on the field would stand. they lose 20-13. and the stanford offense is
held to under 300 yards and no touchdowns. san jose state riding its longest winning streak in 22 years hosting utah state. not a good home combing for the spartans' defense. second quarter the aggies second touchdown of the day. spartans down 28-3. from there san jose state put up 17 unanswered points. david fails to noel griggs by. 28-20 at the half. but the aggies were too much in the second half. spartans defense gave up over 500 yards on the day. 28 yards and san jose state falls to 4-2 and loses 49-27. where were you the last time the raiders won in the eastern time zone? tom cable was the head coach, and the kid from burg lived out -- pittsburgh lived out his childhood dream. >> it's like a game in your
backyard. flag football game. a pickup game. you just got to play. >> it's unbelievable. it's special. it's special. >> it certainly was special. the great man stunned the steelers back in 2009. since then the raiders have lost six straight in the eastern time zone. tomorrow they'll look to hand the falcons their first loss of the season. >> we're a pretty confident bunch. no matter what's going on. you know, we know what we're capable of doing. and it's just a matter of piecing everything together and i believe it's going to snowball for us, get one, two, three, four, five, six wins in a row but it starts with the first one. so you know we really need to get one going so we can get to stacking them. >> and you can see the raiders and falcons right here on cbs 5 and stay tuned after the game for the fifth quarter with dennis o'donnell and jeremy new berry. a new update on kelly who was hit during bp. he is doing well and better and is going to be released from
the hospital. all right, well coming up later tonight on eyewitness news. a cbs 5 reporter goes over the edge. >> i've never done this before. ooh. >> oh juliette. why a very nervous juliette goodrich pa realed down -- rappeled down a tall hotel in vegas. that's that and more at 11:00 right here on cbs 5. she's okay. that's it for us, we'll see you at 11:00.
